IMA Freeze dryer
Freeze drying – or lyophilization – is a process that removes water from a product at low temperatures. First, the substance is frozen. It is then dried by sublimation of ice under vacuum pressure. This is done without damaging or changing the product. It is a sensitive process that requires the highest level of protection. Freeze drying is a much gentler way of dehydrating a substance than other methods that require high temperatures. High temperatures risk destroying or changing the product.
A freeze-dried product can easily be rehydrated again by adding water. Freeze drying also significantly extends shelf life. This makes the method particularly applicable for a large number of products in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry.
Together with IMA, PPS supplies containment freeze drying equipment as well as freeze dryers for lab scale and production purposes. Additionally, we offer filling, loading and unloading equipment, also from IMA, offering the benefit of the entire freeze dryer solution coming from the same supplier.
IMA LYNFINITY Continuous Aseptic Spray-Freezy-Drying
Raising productivity and reducing downtime is now possible in a continuous aseptic process, with constant monitoring from fermentation to final packaging.
IMA LYOMAX Industrial Freeze Dryer
Freeze-drying involves removal of solvent such that the molecular structure of the active ingredient of the drug is least disturbed, thus providing a dried drug product that is stable over time.
IMA MINIMAX Small-scale Freezy Dryer
Based on the successful LYOMAX industrial FD concept, MINIMAX is a GMP, small-scale freeze dryer developed to address the demands involved in handling small production batches.
IMA LYOFAST Industrial Freeze Dryer
Freeze-drying of biopharmaceuticals has become a routine procedure, which leads to an increase in product stability. LYOFAST is the pre-engineered cost-effective, reliable and efficient standard solution.
The freeze drying process has important applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and pharmaceutical freeze drying is now a standard process used to stabilize, store or increase the shelf life of drug products and other biologicals.
LYOFAST is IMA Life solution to keep freeze-drying competitive as a pharmaceutical processing step.
For either bulk format or liquid in vials, ampoules or syringes, the LYOFAST units are designed for freeze drying high value products, such as: vaccines, antibiotics, cytostatics, biologicals, hormones, active ingredients, and reactives.
IMA LYOFAST MINI Pilot Freeze Dryer
The new compact LYOFAST MINI range of freeze dryers provides the link between laboratory development, pilot and industrialized production.
IMA MINIFAST Pilot Freeze Dryer
The MINIFAST range of freeze dryers is the connecting factor between a typical bench-top freeze dryer used in the laboratories and the GMP production scale ones.
